Meet the ever so delicious Miss Tulip! Tuli is a baby female rough coat Saint Bernard who found herself in the Saintly Bernards Rescue program and is blossoming into a beautiful Tulip.

Tuli is my first Saint foster puppy- and let me tell you.... it IS as hard as you think! Training and socializing a saint pup is crucial to a successful and balanced life. You help mold the baby saints character, temperment and disposition as their leader. Consistency is KEY! House training is easy if you do not mind the following... not sleeping (except when the saint pup does), going for lots of walks and tough love! They need constant attention and constant correction to help set them up for success. Puppies are lil poop machines who think it is okay to whine, bark, chew and dig. They are so cute- BUT they test your patience. As their leader you must be calm, assertive and their leader.

Crate training, house breaking, feeding on the down, basic commands and leash walking are all skills that we can help your working dog learn, as early as 6 weeks. Training in small increments helps them concentrate on the task at hand. Remember, a saint that jumps all over you when they are young- will jump when they are over 100 lbs. Remember, a saint who sleeps in the bed at 20 lbs will want to sleep in your bed when they are over 100 lbs. Remember, a saint who doesn't learn respect of you and other dogs, will not respect you when they grow up. Remember, a saint who mouths you and does not receive correction young, can be set up for mouthing when they have full adult teeth. Remember, a saint puppy, will grow into a very large dog. Setting them up to be well balanced dogs will benefit you and your family!

Thinking about adopting a puppy? Doing research on the breeds and their energy levels, grooming, feeding, training, socializing etc... is very important to matching the right pup with the right family. Uneducated owners who make quick decisions on a "cute" puppy find themselves lost down the road. A pup, like a dog, is a lifetime commitment. If you can commit to your dog, your dog can commit to you.
|Quincy & His mini me|
It is very easy for your puppy to demand to be the center of attention from EVERYONE! When I walk Tuli around the neighborhood or anywhere for that matter, I get stopped. It is as if the world stopped for a second and people melt into a puddle of puppy mush. They start using a high pitch voice, talking in baby voice and lose all sense of control. Make sure these new people know how to greet a puppy and make sure your puppy has earned the right to get that attention! Remember a puppy is a baby who will turn into an adult. They depend on you for guidance and to meet their basic needs.
|Tuli 9-10 weeks|
Tuli has done great in the first week at our house. I have worked diligently with her to make sure we set her up to be an amazing Saint Bernard. Quincy, Addie & McKenzie have begun to show her the difference between right and wrong and when enoughs enough. Proper socialization, proper nutrition, proper exercise and obedience training are our top priorties for this lil munchkin. She is social with all! She is an eager to please SAINT BERNARD :)
